Artful Dodge Discussion

Pure_Insanity on Bogles the mind (Tier 1 Modern $100)

But, but. I run Apostle's Blessing and Vines of Vastwood damn. What about pumping on the stack to make Lightning Bolt dud. What about my Spell Pierce?! I thought I had an unbeatable deck... Well back to the drawing board throws infect deck in bin. Also what's Artful Dodge if not the worst of the unblockable spells. Distortion Strike and Aqueous Form are way better than Artful Dodge

But what happens to your bogles when a turn 2 Pyroclasm or any other spell that indirectly targets your hex proof? Are you done as well. Cause you'll be sitting on enchants with no creatures.

TL:DR - Every deck has its weakness.

Oh yeah, if you do insist on running Consuming Aberration, run Dream Twist, Think Twice and Artful Dodge. You'll thank me later ;)

Actually I was thinking of putting in Aqueous Form or Artful Dodge but I have been pretty successful with this. Ill try some on a sideboard soon and see how that works out. Thanks for the reccomendation!

Another card I came up with: Dimir Cutpurse. It's a minor mill, but it's something. Plus, it gets you drawing cards to get more mill into your hands. Something like Aqueous Form or at least Artful Dodge would be a useful combo with Dimir Cutpurse, Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker, or Szadek, Lord of Secrets. Probably not necessary, but it could be useful.

Yea. 2 Mountains and 2 Incandescent Soulstoke. they don't do much anyways.

Monastery Mentor could also be cool here. Sleight of Hand would also be great.

All in all, I'd remove 2x mtns, 4x soulstokes, 2x Artful Dodge, 2x Flamekin Harbinger, and 1 Sacred Foundry


4 Sleight of Hand, 4 Monastery Mentor, and (POSSIBLY) Jeskai Ascendancy for beef.

Just an idea though... : )

RSMTirish on U/R Almost a Combo Delver Deck

Hey ClockworkSwordfish, thank's for the suggestions. I don't think that Apostle's Blessing would be a good option, because this deck is already really heavy on life loss. I have fetches, shocks, and pains in my mana base, along with Mutagenic Growth, Dismember, and with Spellskite, and Surgical Extraction in the side board. I think that Distortion Strike is a definite upgrade to Artful Dodge, and will change that right now. Thanks!

Distortion Strike also hits twice because it has rebound.the only advantage Artful Dodge gives me is the fact when it gets countered I can just cast it again for the flashback cost.but I still prefer the Distortion Strike over the Artful Dodge but that's just preference :)

and actually this deck is based on the ninja bear delver deck from travis woo (the guy who made the living end deck).I only adjusted it to fit my personal budget and preferences.

I'd prefer Artful Dodge to Distortion Strike. You get to use it twice, which to me seems like card advantage, which is always good. You'll get the same damage buff (at least) as distortion strike, because it will be 2 hits instead of 1.

Also, Ninjitsu is one of my favorite mechanics. Nice original idea. +1
